Find The Bunny Get A Free Taco

Easter Egg HuntThe Mexican restaurant Espiritu Mezcaleria on 520 Capdeville St. has an Easter Egg or, or should we say Bunny hunt, going on at Lafayette Square.  They say Mayahuel, goddess of the agave plant, nursed 400 rabbits with her 400 breasts. These rabbits then brought mezcal to the people. Many of Mayahuel’s rabbits have escaped into Lafayette Square in New Orleans. Find these cute little conejos and bring them back to Espíritu for a free taco! For more information visit: https://www.facebook.com/Espiritu-Mezcaleria-1819488644831568/?modal=admin_todo_tour
